Overview

Ways of Reading offers a uniquely exciting approach to first-year composition, integrating reading, writing, and critical thinking with an ambitious selection of readings and editorial support. An introduction provides a framework to guide students in reading "with and against the grain." Then Ways of Reading helps students develop the intellectual skills necessary for academic work by engaging them in conversations with key academic and cultural texts. With selections by thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Susan Bordo, and Kwame Anthony Appiah, it also bridges the gap between contemporary critical theory and composition so that instructors can connect their own scholarly work with their teaching. An extensive instructor’s manual provides a wealth of support. Now with exciting new contemporary readings and e-Pages—online essays and videos integrated with the print book—Ways of Reading continues to be the most intellectually thrilling reader available.
